Black Beauty — Overall an excellent choice for a 4WD vehicle. Good size, not too big or too small. V-8 engine has plenty of power and the 4WD system works very easily. Comfortable vehicle for long trips on the highway. No bounce or jitter of some 4WD vehicles. I believe the independent rear suspension really benefits the overall ride and handling of this vehicle.

Pros: Smooth highway ride, very comfortable seats, both front and rear.  4WD is a big plus, and snow/mud/rain don't stop it!  Handling is very good for a 4WD vehicle.

Cons: As with any 4WD, gas mileage is not great, but to be expected.  20 MPH on the highway is pretty good, but in straight in town driving, only get 10-12 MPG.

A Luxury Family Suv. — If I was in the market to purchase a family size SUV again, the Exployer XLT would be the car. This is from a person who has owned an Expedition and the smaller Exployer. The XLT is the car for my family.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great family car for transporting grands and friends to and from basketball games. It accommodates eight adults comfortably. Leather seats adds to the overall luxury of the car.

Cons: The V-6 engine's gas mileage in town wasn't the best, however, on the highway it was very good.

Great Winter Vehicle — I love everything about this vehicle except the gas mileage. It handles great in bad weather, is roomy enough for my family of 5, and I think the mid-size SUV is perfect. Easier to fit into tight places than the Expedition, yet you still sit up high in traffic, and you can haul more than the Escape.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Sharp looking and great features.  Driven through 3 blizzards like it was nothing.  This is a great winter vehicle.

Cons: The only thing I don't care for is the poor gas mileage ... I only average about 15 MPG
